Only 2 h before closing and we mainly visited impressionists exhibition: very well organized and so many different of them. Good overview e.g. from Gaugain works during decades. Beautiful building, take some additional stairs to see the roof top view also!

I stuck mainly with the Impressionists. Excellent collection featuring Danish artists. I spent most of my time viewing works by Van Gogh, Manet, Monet and statues. Tip - free admission on Tuesday.
